Cinnamon Verum is a subtle, savory cinnamon variety that may be different from the cinnamon you're used to, with a beautiful aroma and flavor that really comes out when the cinnamon is cooked.

If you're looking for a more familiar but extra-sweet and spicy cinnamon, you might like our Royal Cinnamon as well.  

Our Cinnamon Verum (aka Ceylon or "true" cinnamon) is complex, herbal and a little savory, with notes of pine, citrus peel and sea salt. This cinnamon is the inner bark of the Cinnamomum verum tree. It's perfect for savory dishes like tomato sauces, stews, chili and barbecue rubs, as well as for baked goods and breakfasts like oatmeal or pancakes.

Burlap & Barrel is the sole importer of Zanzibar spices to the US. Like all of the spices from our partner cooperative in Zanzibar, our Cinnamon Verum is grown organically.

COOKING

SOURCING

Our cinnamon is the inner bark of the Cinnamomum verum, tree also known as true cinnamon or Ceylon cinnamon.

It is grown by a cooperative of smallholder farmers on the Zanzibar islands off the east coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean, many of whom have been cultivating cinnamon and other spices (including our cloves, nutmeg and black pepper) for generations.

It grows on the steep hillsides rising above the beach, where it thrives in the hot sun, salty breeze and sandy soil, a terroir that contributes to a subtle, smooth flavor without any bitterness. The cinnamon is hand-cut and sun-dried to order throughout the year to guarantee the freshest and most intense flavor.

Meet the Farmer: Bakari Omar is pictured holding a branch of a cinnamon tree that he just cut. The next step is to shave off the bark, some of which will be ground into powder, and some of which will be made into shavings.

I never knew spices could be this fresh

Very satisfied. Cinnamon verum is floral, citrus scented and tastes fresh. I will be ordering again, and looking at your other spices now too.
